Final Meeting of the Retrostem Project!

Another KA2 Erasmus+ project is coming soon to a successful end! 

The RETROSTEM Project:”Using retro gaming consoles to revive hands-on play and promote STEM” had its final virtual meeting (due to Covid-19) on the 2nd of June 2020..

The projects’ primary objective was to produce approaches and tools to help those working with children reach out to them with a view to help them engage with programming and develop STEM-related skills.

The consortium achieved this not by increasing screen time but by encouraging hands-on play through the creation of games playable on a retro design console in combination with electronic gadgets relating to STEM subjects. The various activities organised in schools – centres in Cyprus, Poland, UK, Ireland and Romania have indicated the impact of promoting targeted digital skills among young students.
